Learning Liftoff’s editors picked the top snacks, crafts, and other fun weekend activities for September 19-21.


 Take a break! You’ve been in school for a few days or weeks now, and you deserve it. Watch a movie you’ve been meaning to see, or check out a TV show on Netflix. Whatever helps you relax your mind, make time to take time!

Everyone likes to have a yummy snack while they’re taking a break, so think outside of the box. Put a spin on the original Puppy Chow recipe, and make a Funfetti Cupcake Puppy Chow, and enjoy!

You need something to wash down all of that Puppy Chow, so make it equally as delicious. Yum!

12 Days of Easy Christmas Decorating: Countdown To Christmas Chalkboard

Make a countdown. Sometimes, I find that it’s the little piece of inspiration I’m looking for to get me through a homework assignment, or to wrap up a project. Count down to your birthday, a holiday, the weekend, or all three. Running out of wall space? There are plenty of great countdown apps available for iOs and Android.

You can also have fun this weekend by making your own lava lamp.
